CubeX 3D printer prints big objectsAt CES 2013, Rich Brown takes a look at the CubeX 3D.
Hi, I'm Rich Brown for CNET [unk] CES in Las Vegas and this is the 3D System's booth and we're here to take a look at the CubeX 3D printer. This is 3D System's brand new high-end 3D printer. This thing is just a beef. It has the largest built in volume of any desktop printer. It prints by about 11 x 10 x 10. So, big giant objects. This basketball here is one example. So, it's kind of hard to see from this angle but inside you can see there's 1, 2, 3 print cartridges that lets you print objects made of 3 different colors. And it also supports 2 different kinds of material - ABS and PLA. It can actually make objects printed from both plastics at the same time. So, what's also pretty cool about this printer is that it comes in a couple of different variants. You need a single cartridge printer that costs about $2500 bucks. [unk] 2 cartridge that goes for 3300 all the way up to a 3-cartridge model for 4,000. Now, what's great also is that you can upgrade that. So, if you buy the 2500 version and decide you want a little bit more color, then you can certainly add one after effect. So, 3D Systems is taking orders for the CubeX today and it's gonna be shipping on February 8. I'm Rich Brown. This is the 3D Systems CubeX 3D printer.
